A beautifully illustrated book with a small amount of factual information but then tends to take your child along a journey of the colours during the day and those at night.

A lovely little tale of the owls surprise at discovering so many bright colours and at the end of the story a small colour wheel gets your child to find the colours themselves in the pages in the book.

A short tale but perfect for a bedtime tale.

A cute story about a young owl who stays awake all day so she can explore all the colors of the day. My 3 years old daughter adores this story and she loves when the owl says "wow" on each page as she sees a new colour. Great book for small children to learn their colours.

This is a nice book, about an owl who wants to see what it's like during the day. So he stays awake all night to see all the amazing colours around him. But as night time comes he realises that it's what he likes best. My little boy enjoyed this book.
